Locust Lawn was a prosperous farm of some 385 acres that
grew rye, oats, corn, and wheat and also had apple orchards. Milk
cows, chickens, beef cattle and pigs provided dairy and meat - all
for home consumption and for sale at market. A herd of sheep
also provided wool. A saw mill on the property supplied lumber
for the farm and for sale. Census records for 1820 indicate the
presence of several white servants and twelve enslaved Africans.
These people worked inside the house and on the farm.
